Ten years ago: Littleton, Colo. paused to remember the victims on the first anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush signed a bill making it harder for debt-ridden people to wipe clean their financial slates by declaring bankruptcy.

One year ago: Medical student Philip Markoff was arrested in the death of Julissa Brisman, a masseuse he’d met through Craigslist and whose body was found in a Boston hotel.

AP Odd News
Bride’s mom delivers baby
MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin woman who went into labor on the way to a hospital got an assist from a bride’s mother at a nearby wedding party.

Ben Sherwood of New Berlin was driving his wife Kimberly to the hospital Saturday when she told him they wouldn’t make it. They saw a police officer by the Milwaukee Art Museum and flagged him down.

Ben Sherwood tells WTMJ the officer had the same frightened look that Ben had. So Ben turned to a wedding party nearby and starting yelling for a doctor.

A woman in a peach dress and high heels ran over. It was Annette Soborowicz, an emergency-room nurse.

A few pushes later and Soborowicz was holding little Lincoln Sherwood.

Soborowicz says it was an amazing day — the Sherwoods had a son and she gained a wonderful son-in-law.

Quadruplets to go to same college
EAST SETAUKET, N.Y. (AP) — The vote is unanimous.

A set of quadruplets from New York have decided to attend the same college. Grace, Erin, Bobby and Danny Mele will attend Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y., in the fall.

Grace Mele was the holdout. She was concerned about spending her college years known as “one of the quadruplets.”

Their dad, Robert Mele, cried with happiness at the news.

Or was it sticker shock?

Actually, scholarships and sibling discounts have greatly reduced the family’s upcoming bill — to about $74,000 a year.
